Currently the In-House Composer at Gearbox Software,

joshua michael carro (b. 1982 - ) is a versatile multimedia artist, percussionist, sound designer, producer, teacher, and composer.  carro's current work strives to develop new methods of graphic modular composition for instruments of any kind with the extension of electro-acoustic and visual elements.  Aside from his research in sound design, composition, production, music technology, North Indian Classical Tabla, and social artistic behavior, carro's work has appeared in games, film, T.V., (Netflix and National Geographic) concert spaces and recordings across the World.

 

While holding a disciplined versatile artistic practice carro performs in BLOOD OATH (Los Angeles) with Ulrich Krieger (Lou Reed, Metal Machine Trio, Sonic Youth).  Described as an “extreme physical entity” BLOOD OATH is the first ever experimental noise-metal saxophone-drum duo, opening up new paths, and defining abstract metal that combines dark ambient, harsh noise, doom and death metal with free improvisation. 

 

Carro is a core member of Ehnahre the extreme metal ensemble and contemporary composition collective based in Boston, Massachusetts. Their music incorporates elements of Contemporary classical music, Aleatoric music, Doom metal, and Death metal, and utilizes extended techniques, aleatoric rhythms, aspects of Serialism, elements from free improvisation, contemporary chamber music, and extreme metal styles. 

 

carro’s solo project [[[personablack]]] is the main focus of his sound and artistic research.  [[[personablack]]] is a solo electro-acoustic drumming project that cross-pollinates with many musical and artistic genres from antiquity to modern experimental noise and sound design.  Integrating an extended use of Abelton Live, Max for Live, and Isotonik Studios software, this project has a promise and potential to become the next wave of musical and artistic evolution.  With over 150 compositions and 30 albums, carro’s work has been performed and broadcast all over the world and has been described as “Both cuts destroy the opposition, and will flatten you as surely as a falling boulder flattens Wile E. Coyote.”
